Snow Forecast Summary

Image Placeholder

We calculate the snow forecast summary by taking the snow forecast for the previous night + the current day. Example: The snow forecast summary has 15 inches for Saturday...

  • Friday Night = 7-11 inches = 9 inches
  • Saturday Day = 4-8 inches = 6 inches
  • Saturday Summary = 15 inches
The snow forecast summary calculation is shown this way since this is the snow that you would see/ski on that day.
